Recorded back in February but finally airing tonight, the latest edition of 'A Woman's Heart' won over audiences young and old.
Eleanor McEvoy, Wallis Bird and Maura O'Connell performed orchestrated songs from the classic album at the National Opera House.
The album was originally recorded in 1992, and quickly became a massive chart hit in Ireland. The first run of the album sold over 750,000 copies in Ireland alone and crossed almost one million physical sales worldwide.
Last night's performance saw the original twelve songs from the album, including 'Caledonia', 'The Island', and of course, the title track, performed on stage with the full RTÉ Concert Orchestra.
Here's some of the tweets from last night's performance. The concert is available on RTE Player now and will be rebroadcast on Monday night on RTÉ One at 11.35PM.
Oh man, that was just gorgeous! Caledonia was something special. Can't wait for the next sing song at all hours of the morning ❤️ #awomansheart

A Woman’s Heart must be one of those albums that was in every single Irish house. Or car, in our case.
Takes me back immediately to a month in my sister’s house near Bordeaux in the summer of 1993. I think my Dad played that tape in the car every single day we were there.
